I hate when mechanics, think women are stupid. My headlight went out, normally I would have fix it myself. But I was being lazy, so I go to the shop & ask how much they would charge. The man tells me they have to take off my whole bumper to change the light. WTF? I told him no that’s not the case, I told him I have changed it before. So, short story… I asked if I could use his tools to change it myself. He told me I could & he was so sure I couldn’t do it, that he would pay me $10. Well, my light is fixed & I went to burger king with my $10.

She’s had no automotive tech training whatsoever, except from various friends and of course, YT has saved her bacon many times. The car is a 5 year old Chevy Impala. She does a lot of her own work, brakes, CV joints, exhaust, etc.

Did she have to buy turn signal fluid?

No but her Daddy did advise her to put new muffler bearings in on that job.

When I did the timing belt on my Miata, heads on the C6 Z06, etc etc I used lots of YouTube.
Being mechanically includes helps.
Never had a problem :grin:
